BANGOR, Maine — Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway will host its 10th blood drive in partnership with the American Red Cross 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, July 28, in the Lancaster Room.

Employees, casino patrons, and members of the general public who meet eligibility requirements for blood donations are encouraged to donate to help boost the American Red Cross’ blood supply. With summer in full swing, donations tend to decline, yet someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds. The American Red Cross provides about half of the nation’s blood supply, or about six million pints per year. The American Red Cross has set a goal of 30 pints of blood to be collected during the drive.
 
Those interested in donating blood should bring a valid photo identification and can stop by Hollywood Casino’s Lancaster Room during the blood drive, make an appointment by calling 800-RED-CROSS or by visiting www.redcrossblood.org.
